Whiff of Joy Happy Mail

Whew! Another Monday is over!

This is a quick post to share a card I made using some Whiff of Joy stamps.  This card uses the Whiff of Joy City Girl Shape Sentiment Set and City Girl Shape die cut that released on October 1st (which I designed).  I love how it works so perfectly peaking out! I've used an image from one of my favorite Whiff of Joy collections, the Happy Mail Collection.  This image is Charlotte with Mailbox and the sentiment is from the Charlotte Riding on Pigeon

I've used some beautiful papers from the BasicGrey Olivia 6x6 Paper Pad, used lots of pearls, lots of flowers, ribbon, and a button.  The image was colored with Distress Reinkers with Medium Koi Water Brush.  The inside is stamped with a large thank you stamp.  Oh my goodness, this thank you stamp is SO OLD that it's actually wood mounted.  I love this stamp, though :)  The border inside was punched using the Martha Stewart Scallop Dot Edge Punch.

Stamp: Whiff of Joy Charlotte with Mailbox
Coloring Medium: Distress Reinkers with Medium Koi Water Brush
Paper: BasicGrey Olivia 6x6 Paper Pad
Accessories: pearls, ribbon, button, twine, Prima flowers, flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
ToolsMartha Stewart Scallop Dot Edge Punch, Making Memories Paper TrimmerATG adhesive gun
